What is importance of receiving Self Realization?

Shri Mataji - In the evolutionary process, a  human being has come out of a small little unicellular animal called amoeba as they say, the science. What is the purpose of becoming a human being? The purpose of his becoming a human being is that he has to become the spirit. This vehicle of a human body,mind, is to express the spirit within. Self Realization is the epitome of our evolution so we all have to become Self Realized. Without Self, we are in darkness, we are not aware of the all pervading power which is doing all the living works, all kinds of living works which we cannot do. What we do is the dead work or the mental projections which recoils back upon ourselves. We must get to Self Realization, that's the goal of human ascent from amoeba to this stage.
